Bugatti – cars, furniture and sculptures by the Bugatti family
‘Bugatti – cars, furniture and sculptures by the Bugatti Family’ was published to accompany the similarly titled exhibition in 1998 and tells the story of four world-famous family members.
The Bugatti family, originally from Italy, enjoys worldwide fame for their cars, designed and built by Ettore and his son Jean Bugatti. But Ettore’s father Carlo and his younger brother Rembrandt also contributed to the family’s fame. The versatile Carlo was a furniture design and silversmith, Rembrandt became a legend in animal sculpture. The lives of the four Bugattis span nearly a hundred years, from the mid-19th to the mid-20th century.
Cars, furniture and sculptures of the Bugatti family were shown for the first time in the Netherlands during this exhibition. Various creations were on show in the Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam.
